Interdisciplinary Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Laboratory
The University of Colorado Interdisciplinary Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Laboratory supports clinical research involving the application of TMS to human subjects. Our laboratory is equipped with several different types of coils as well as software to allow for the targeting of structures identified in other imaging modalities (MRI, fMRI, PET, MEG) with TMS. Collaboration with our team may include review of potential protocols, performing TMS or training in the application of TMS.
Examples of potential projects include:
Use of single pulse TMS to determine motor or visual cortex excitability and thresholds.
Use of single pulse TMS at fixed interstimulus intervals to determine the timing of task related involvement for specific cortical areas.
Use of paired pulse TMS to quantify interhemispheric and/or intercortical inhibition and excitation, including relation to GABA and NMDA function.
Use of repetitive TMS to create transient virtual lesions or focally augment cortical function.
Use of repetitive TMS as a therapeutic modality (e.g. depression, hallucinations, tinnitus).
